After calling Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "two-faced,” US President Donald Trump decided to make some new friends, according to the popular US talk show host, Trevor Noah.

In the Daily Show on Wednesday, Noah said Trump “decided to go home early” after being mocked by state leaders, seen in a video that circulated widely around the world. “But before he left,” said Noah, Trump “tried to get back at all these other dudes by making some new friends”.

The new friends in question were the “two percenters,” as Trump called the heads of state that spend 2 percent of their national GDP on defence. The leaders of eight countries, including Lithuania, attended a lunch hosted by the American president during the NATO summit in London.

Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda even posted on Facebook a letter signed by Trump.

“Okay, this is just embarrassing now,” said Noah. “Trump’s rolling with Lithuania, Romania and Latvia because of what happened.”

“And they’re probably really nice,” he added, impersonating an indistinct Eastern European accent. “Don’t be sad Donald, you can have some of my horse tongue.”

“It’s boiled and picked,” said Noah, before switching to Trump’s voice crying out, “get away”.

Instead of horse, beef tongue is a traditional Lithuanian and regional dish usually eaten with horseradish, and you can find it in most supermarkets, in case you’re wondering.
